Community help needed for Community Christmas Project

in

To The Editor:
Each year, our Community Christmas Project reaches out to brighten Christmas for many area residents. Last year, baskets were delivered to 159 families affecting 530 of your friends, relatives, and neighbors. Homemade breads were delivered to people who were recently bereaved. Margaretville Central School elementary children made cards that were mailed with gift certificates to area residents who live alone. Toys, mittens, and other gifts were wrapped and given to 205 children.
It has been our purpose to act as an umbrella organization soliciting donations of time, energy, gifts, and money from organizations and groups. We are truly grateful for the generous response from our community. Every year, more groups and individuals become involved with this project.
In light of the hard economic times upon us, your help is truly needed to continue the work done by this community project.
Please mail checks to: Community Christmas Project, PO Box 58, Margaretville, NY 12455-0058.
